when RC was talking about MC and said there were nights when you could look at MC's eyes and he had that look, like, "nobody is beating me tonight"...and RC says over to Emig "Hey Jeff...you've seen that look, right?" - you can probably hear me belly ... more »

Definitely recommend the YouTube version for this one. Hopefully producer Donnie had a tight angle on RC's face when he and Ping went back and forth about it being "the RC show" over at Pro Circuit. The energy and emotion during this section is 20+ years ... more »

Great perspective. To me, and to your point, you can tell Ricky went on to do great things and you can tell he's a guy who's had an agent/manager and coach for handling tough questions diplomatically. He's a great ambassador for the sport.

he speaks the truth about that decision in detail...lot of people were interested in why he left Kawi for Honda...and again, Honda for Suzuki.

Interesting to hear RC's take on this last night on the Whiskey Throttle show. Ping feels it was a take-out, too aggressive while RC and GL felt it was an innocent accident with no bad intentions.

I don't know anything specific about the environmental study, but the first time I heard about this track was 7 yrs ago and considering people are still investing money and time to make it happen, is a positive sign to me. Maybe it just takes that long ... more »

The timing of the hearing to discuss potential reopening is interesting now that Prado Raceway, about 20 miles to the North, is getting closer to the green light for opening. If both tracks opened somehow by the grace of some moto-god, SoCal would have ... more »

I was able to chat with Don Wagner's people about Irvine lake and boating. They literally laughed and said "whoa....slow down a second, we're surprised we got the lake re-opened at all!". But, that is the plan, to get boats back on the water.

my perspective from living <5mi from Anaheim stadium for past 20 years is this: 100% chance of rain = 50/50 chance 75% chance of rain = 25% chance anything less than 55% chance of rain = no rain. Also, add 12 to 24 hours to the approximate time rain ... more »

I live a few miles from the stadium and this story has been on the local news.The title of this thread is not accurate, and our local news - to my surprise - was at least responsible enough to say "this does NOT mean the Angels are leaving the stadium".

Rode a full day in a Bell Moto 9 and immediately noticed how loud everything sounded compared to a 6D. So I tried on an older Shoei VFX-Air and then my 6D, and the Bell had substantial more engine/wind noise. I don't know if that's good or bad, just ... more »
